Custom Fertilizer Spreader

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Got the spreader back together. It's done, now I have to figure out what to do with it.

I messed up. Haven't even used it yet and broke it, lol. I took it home and hooked it to the tractor last week. Had it all the way down and hooked the PTO shaft up. Cole and I were out the other day and I cranked the tractor and turned it on, it was quiet and spun like it should. Saturday I had a man coming to buy something and I needed the tractor. The spreader was still hooked up and all the way down, I reached over and lifted the lift and heard a POP. It was to late. Broke the gearbox. I assumed the PTO shaft was the correct length, my mistake and know I shouldn't assume. The PTO shaft is to long and as I raised the spreader the shaft got shorter until it bottomed out and broke the gearbox. Luckily we have a spool gun here at work and I welded the cast aluminum back together and put a couple braces on it. It's ugly but should work. Learned my lesson on PTO shafts Saturday, the hard way.
